Texas Tough

Frank Sinatra and many others have crooned the song New York, New York. The lyrics If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere…. seem particularly apt this election cycle. Hillary and New York have been a great fit. But Texas???


“Texas hasn’t gone Democratic in a presidential race in more than three decades. But the survey shows Republican contender Sen. John McCain essentially tied with Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton among registered voters, with McCain at 36% and Clinton at 35% in a head-to-head contest. Republican Rudy Giuliani and Clinton also are essentially tied, at 32%-31%.”

The complete poll can be read HERE.

But Beware: Because of all the continuing good Hillary news, prepare for another outbreak of Exploding Head Syndrome.

We wrote The Frontrunner, The Hillary Clinton Dynasty, the Big Media Wal-Mart Attack On Hillary, Hillary Can’t Win, and Hillary Can’t Win, Again to address some of the canards dreamed up by those that do not read reality based websites like this one.

The latest canard currently recycled is the “Hillary will unify the Ripublicans like no other Democrat therefore we can’t nominate her because we are so scared of the mean old Ripublicans. Please, Please, Whine, Whine, We can’t nominate Hillary because then the Ripublicans will say mean things about us again and if we fight them they might say mean things about us and whine, whine, whine.”

For the record once again: any Democrat nominated by the Democratic Party will be attacked and attacked viciously, relentlessly, dishonorably, and unfairly. But Hillary will fight and fight effectively. Hillary will not be swiftboated and then wait weeks to respond. Hillary will not be swiftboated.

What will quickly and effectively unify the Ripublicans?

One word: weakness.

The Ripublicans are now discouraged. They know Hillary will unite the Democratic Party and run an intelligent and courageous and effective and successful campaign. Hillary will deflate and demoralize the Ripublicans because they know she will win.

The Ripublicans will unite and be happy and encouraged if they think they can win. If they smell blood in the water, or fear, or inexperience they will unite into one angry pack and gnaw and bite and chew on Democrats everywhere. They will attack the weak, run away from the fearless and strong.

Democrats will not let fear choose their nominee. The united Democratic Party will win with Hillary.
